Friends of GT Scholars – Will you be joining us at the next volunteer meetup?!

Good morning and happy Friday! I hope your week has been great so far and that you have some exciting plans lined up for the weekend. It’s been a week of strange news. I read about Hurricane Dorian in the US, where cows were found swimming in the sea! Who knew that cows could swim?! But enough of my random rantings here’s this week less random newsletter…

Join us at our next meetup!
It would be great if you can make it to our next Volunteer Meetup where you can meet fellow volunteers and workshop facilitators. During the evening, we’ll be giving you an update on our programmes and the difference that it’s made. New volunteers still in the application stage can complete their document verification with one of our team members at the meetup. The meetup will be on Thursday 12th December from  6:30pm to 9pm. In the meantime, you can pencil the date in your diary. An invite will be emailed to you shortly! 

Spotlight on volunteers!
We’re looking for volunteers that would like to feature in our Volunteer Spotlight interview series. This interview series is a great way for us to celebrate our fantastic volunteers and the amazing work they’re doing and share more about their talent, dedication and motivation for volunteering. If you’ve volunteered as a tutor, mentor or helped out at one or more of our events in the past year, we’d love to set up an interview with you. Please feel free to let me know! Interviews will be done during November and December.

Share, Like, Tweet & Repost!
We’d love for you to help us build our online presence in order to reach more volunteers and young people to get involved with our programmes and events.  It’s easy, connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn and share or invite your friends to join! You’ll also receive notifications and stay up to date on new blog posts, current news and events and important real-time announcements. 

Have a terrific weekend!
